Top 5 Places to Visit in Kashmir

 

Your recreational trip to Srinagar won’t complete if you avoid enjoying a few side trips to the splendid countryside of Kashmir.

You can arrange tour with the help of local houseboat or hotel owners. If your budget doesn’t allow, it is better to choose day trips in state-owned buses. To get started, you should choose these well-known tourist destinations in Kashmir.

Located about 2½ hours drive from Srinagar, the “Meadow of God” Sonamarg intersects on Srinagar-Ladakh Highway and is well-known for Thajiwas Glacier. The tourists climb up the glacier straight from the highway and return back within five hours. Instead, you can ride a pony or hire a taxi and walk from halfway, if you are running out of time. Several scenes have been shot in this place in Bollywood movies.

You can access Zanskar only from a frozen river while trekking. Due to the remoteness of Zanskar, the traditions and culture of the locals remained untouched. The lifestyle in this place is rich in culture and tradition and is very colorful. The locals live semi-nomadic lifestyle and they keep cattle. The largest town here is Padum with the smallest population of only 700 to 800 residents.

The evergreen valley is capped with brown, dry mountains on both sides and providing a distinct view at the outset. Leh gets a distinct feel and look with its cultural and geographical alienation. It is India’s one of coolest places. It is also known as the “Small Tibet” due to the religious and cultural influence of Tibet in the city. It looks like a little oasis in the mid of the desert. Its inhabitants are hospitable. The popularity of Leh among tourists is surprisingly increasing and it is considered as one of the budget-friendly destinations for holidaymaking in India.
